Uncle Hercules and Other Lies: 16 essays about almost nothing is a book of true stories about the nature of lies. The stories range from silly to sadly funny, and include stories that are about queer identity in action, rather than queer identity in theme—you're not gonna read a coming out story. But every story is queer culture! Also, Skyrim Dog.
Prepare to have your heart warmed, tickled, shattered, and put back together with sticky tape as Uncle Hercules and other lies barrels through a collection of tender and tenderised non-fictions.
Shortlisted for the Scribe Non-fiction Prize, Uncle Hercules and other lies is gooey with incroyable half-fibs, formative moments, and bad life choices.
